    To all I have interacted with:

    I want to thank everyone for telling me the way things are for you. I thank you for putting up with my dumb questions. I thank you for putting up with my rantings of my new baby, er, I mean, PRO walk behind.

    I have been redeployed to oversee all Ariens products on the consumer side. I am excited at the opportunity and hope I can do a good job on those products.

    My hat is off to each and every one of you. You are living the American dream by going at it yourselves. I am impressed with all of you.

    Thank you for everything. I will still lurk from time-to-time. Can't help it, I love what you guys do and wish all of you the best.

    I really must have misunderstood Barry's message, because I am not coming up with the comments that are here.

    I do not believe Barry is going overseAs, or that he is not going to have computer access.
    I took his message to mean that he is going to be overseEing a new project and therefore, he will not have the time to devote to this site as before.

    Either way, good luck Barry.

    Just because your not going to be designing a new Gravely doesn't mean you have to disown us!:) You are by far the best salesman for your w/b's.

    Good luck. I know your looking forward to it!:)

    Oversee would be correct.

    I have never had so much fun in 15 years of engineering.

    I will still lurk just have to focus on retail sales type stuff including snow throwers. All new for me and I have a lot to learn in a short period of time.

    I will still be around just not nearly as active.

    Selling Ariens products to the overseas market should be an interesting & challanging endeavor. Be sure to get all required immunization & pack an extra sandwich. It's a long trip!
